I have finally sat down and typed out our 12 year curriculum plan so that it can be viewed at a glance on a single sheet of paper. This is not set in stone because I think a plan needs to be fluid, allowing for individual differences in children, but this is what we have generally done in the past and it has worked beautifully for us so far. This framework keeps me sane, focused, content with what I have, saving me from wasting money on the latest and greatest. Sometimes we replace a book with a better one but it is because I have been looking for it, not because it caught my eye. Of course, living overseas far from an English bookstore helps me stick to my plan too. Anyway, if you want a better idea of what we are doing or just want to use the form for yourself and plug in your own plan, feel free to take a peek on my files page.

Collected Poems written by Charlotte Mason graduate Bryana Johnson Now available in paperback and KINDLE
"This collection is a feast, and it goes to show that although God said 'not many wise are called,' a few do get through."
- Andrée Seu Peterson, Senior Writer, WORLD Magazine
"Bryana Johnson's first collection of poetry establishes her as a Christian poet who communicates the gutsy, bleeding beat of life and death...restoring our confidence that there are poets who labor over the word, and who have something to say that the world needs to hear."
- Nathan Harms, Director, Utmost Christian Writers Foundation
"These poems are works of elegance...In a voice both compassionate and compelling, Bryana presents her readers with works that examine what it means to be human and how our very faults and foibles can, in the end, become instruments of grace."
- Wendy Galgan, editor of Assisi
“Then he breathed upon me and took away the trembling from my limbs and caused me to stand upon my feet. And after that, he said not much, but that we should meet again, and I must go further up and further in. Then he turned him about in a storm and flurry of gold and was gone suddenly.
And since then, O Kings and Ladies, I have been wandering to find him and my happiness is so great that it even weakens me like a wound. And this is the marvel of marvels, that he called me Beloved, me who am but as a dog-”
